City of the Living Dead

City of the Living Dead

Directed by Lucio Fulci

A reporter and a psychic try to close the gates of hell before zombies invade Earth in the first of Italian gore maestro Lucio Fulci's "Gates of Hell" trilogy. After a priest guarding the gates dies, Mary and Peter learn that his death created the opportunity for the dead to rise in only a few days. Soon enough, gruesome things start happening - including the film's most famous sequence where a female victim literally pukes her guts out. If George Romero's living dead films are too tame for you, Fulci's films should satisfy all your creepy cravings. Contains violence and gore.

I would love to see Christopher George's character in this and Tom Atkins' character from Halloween III in a movie together.

Goofy so-bad-it's-good zombie flick. Great effects, especially for the time, and fun score. Of course, the tension is nonexistent and the plot makes absolutely no sense but ehhhh I didn't come here expecting It Follows. Actual film rating would be a 2/5, but I'm giving it a 4/5 because I feel that it's more accurate to the amount of fun that can be had from watching this movie.

It may be a 'classic' in the technical sense, but it's pretty bad. Good for a laugh if nothing else.
